We now those people - yes we are splitting an allotment with a friend.
Oh what's an allotment? According to wikipedia, "An allotment garden, often called simply an allotment, is a plot of land made available for individual, non-professional gardening."
Which means these have been around for donkey's years and look like random bits of "plots" put together by random fencing and anything else people can get their hands on. People build buildings and even keep chickens, horses (if its big enough) and anything else they want. I really considered it like redneck country because it was so pieced together haha
The exciting part is Prince Charming is building a shed and a greenhouse so everything is kept there and not in our "yard". We will get potatoes, green beans, broccoli, pumpkin, herbs, jalapeños, leeks and onions!
So roll one spring! Let's hope to get some stuff in the ground for this year!
